When we present 12 Chinese students with their design awards in Shanghai, on 15 April (just before the motor show) 2019, it will mark ten years of the Car Design Awards China. The Awards recognise young design talent, as judged by a panel of senior designers, often Design Directors, working for international automotive and transport companies.
If you are a young Chinese design student, register now. It’s free to enter, and it could change your life.
The awards ceremony follows the motor show in China, so it rotates with the show from Beijing to Shanghai. Shanghai is the heartland of automotive design excellence in China, where multiple cultural influences and a thriving megacity create jobs and an inspiring environment for young designers. Many of the students who entered the CDAC competition have ended up living and working in Shanghai.
These awards have been life-changing for some of the students who have competed over the years, creating opportunity and international travel – and they have allowed CDN and our competition Judges to understand and stay in touch with an aspiring group of young, very talented designers.
